Peanut Butter Banana Cake


So, the other day I went to a bakery and got THE BEST peanut butter cake EVER. I’m seriously drooling right now just thinking about it. It was amazing, and I know if i buy it again it will be gone in a second. SO!
I thought I’d give a go to making one by myself.

I opted to go with whole wheat flour and I did use some butter to line my pan. oops. You can replace that with coconut oil for a healthier version.

You can also sup the eggs for chia or flax egg to keep in vegan!

Ugh. I love how creamy the consistency is!

So here are the 8 ingredients needed for this recipe.

Whole wheat flour (or gluten free flour)

Baking Powder

Baking Soda

Brown Sugar / Coconut sugar

4 Eggs


Peanut Butter

Coconut Oil


Prep time
Cook time
45 minutes
Total time
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (or gluten free flour blend)
  • 1 1/4 baking powder
  • 1 baking soda
  • 2 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 big eggs (or sub 4 flax eggs)
  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 table spoons salted natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and spray a cake pan with coconut oil or butter.
  2. Add the 4 eggs in your Blender bowl (or Prepare flax eggs in a large mixing bowl and let rest for 5 minutes to activate), the baking soda, baking powder and brown sugar. Blend.
  3. When the mixture turns smooth add the flour little by little while slowly blending.
  4. Using a food processor, add bananas and peanut butter and blend thoroughly.
  5. Add in the banana and peanut butter to the main mixture while continuously mixing.
  6. Pour into cake pan and bake for 45 minutes. When ready, poke a knife through, it should come out clean.
  7. Let cool so it hardens up a bit – I love the crunchy outside.
